Fast but... 06/08/2009
This review is from: G.SKILL 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) FM-25S2S-64GB
This booger is really really fast, and I love it. It's really small, ideal for laptops that use SATA.
SSDs are still very unstable. I have been experiencing this instability a lot over the last few months. I have done tons of different types of HDD tests and scan disks to find some sort of resolve for this issue. This type of drive is not suitable for putting an OS on. This type of drive will just vanish at a moments notice and the only fix for an undetermined amount of time is to power cycle the computer. That's right this thing will vanish, no C drive there until you reboot and it could fix it for a day or 20 mins, maybe a week. I am having to go back to a real HDD because of this issue.
All in all, this is a great drive but not suitable for the use with any OS. It has a mini USB port on it and makes for a great external drive or a backup hot-swap drive.
